The Magliozzis, who've been recording new Click and Clack shows for 25 years, announced on their radio show that this season marks the end of new broadcasts.

Tom, who turns 75 this month, is deemed responsible in a blog post on the duo's website, titled "Work-Averse Brother Decides that Even One Hour a Week Is Too Much"--though brother Ray admits it may be time to "stop and smell the cappuccino" after more than 1, 200 recorded shows over the course of a quarter-century.

Car Talk started as a local Boston-area radio show in the 1970s, and was picked up by NPR in the 1980s. Callers have real questions about car repairs and maintenance, of course--but are subject to the brothers' comedy bits, puns, and multiple diversions and trips down memory lane as they wend their way toward a diagnosis of the problem.

The show's following attracts more than four million listeners each week, across more than 350 radio stations and the SiriusXM satellite radio network.

The Magliozzis will stop production of new radio shows in September of this year. Their print column will continue, and old radio shows will be reworked into new episodes.

Could they come back? A reunion's unlikely, the brothers say, but anything's possible.

"Right?" asks Ray?

"Absolutely not, " says Tom. "My brother can go chase himself. I’m done."

Increased Bike vs.Car incidents Radio talk topic

So I was listening to the John Tesh radio talk show last night and the topic came up of a 45% increase in people bike commuting has also led to increased Car vs. Bike rage. incidents which include fist fights car vandalism etc.
the Cagers side was that cyclists blow stop signs, dont have lights and believe they own the road.
the cyclist side was that cars dont pay attention, deny cyclist rights to the road and act out deliberately out of road rage.
I called in to the show to voice my opinion, however, I never got through.
My take was basically bad apples on both sides spoil it for everyone.
